Sterilization of Library’s Digital Equipment with the New UV-C Chamber
May 17, 2021
Are you worried about the hygiene of the notebook computers or tablets when you borrow them from the Library self-service kiosks? Here is the good news! Library users are now welcome to use our new UV-C Disinfection Chamber near the Digital Visualisation Room at 4/F North Wing to sterilize Library’s digital equipment, i.e. laptops, tablets, VR devices, electronic IoTs, headphones and other AV equipment.
The UV-C lights in the chamber can disinfect objects, and kill COVID-19 and other viruses. Recommended disinfection time varies depending on the size of the object. For example, 5-10 minutes for laptops and tablets, and 3 minutes for electronic IoTs, VR devices, headphones and other AV equipment. The disinfection process will stop immediately when the chamber door is opened.

1. Please follow the notice on the spot for instructions and proper use of the facility.
2. Do not put non-Library digital equipment or personal belongings into the UV-C Disinfection Chamber. The Library is not responsible for any damages incurred from improper use of the UV-C Disinfection Chamber.
